  • Small family Park outing. Admission is affordable (7,-dollars) and the huge park. There is a camping and areas dedicated to barbecue, dining areas. Several lakes are worth visiting, as well as an observation tower. The flora and fauna are varied, the Gators not only inhabitants of the bayou. Remember to take water and a head covering. It was quick to spend a lot of time there... ;-)

  • Visited here on a recent visit to the states. It is a very large area with many walks. If your lucky you may see an alligator unfortunately we didn't. We did however see baby alligators which was deli...  read more »
  • This place is within 1.5 hrs of my home and I've never been there in all the years I've lived in this area. Always thought it was so near Houston that it would always be packed and not much fun. Went ...  read more »
  • Fantastic family fun at this park. There are plenty of large fields for kids to run wild on and there are miles of trails to go exploring. I love that several of the trails are near water and high trees and alligators. There are several people that fish near the alligators. I'm always dumbfounded by this, right? Who's going to get their dinner first? My money is on the large reptile. Just saying. I love that this park also has a rescue center where you can see several other animals in addition to baby alligators. Go now!
  • Great place for family hiking. Park rangers frequently ride on their bicycles to ensure the public's safety. Plenty of small stops along the trails to use restrooms, observe the scenery, and some offer free water. Plenty of gators. And hourly wild life lectures at their gift shop.
  • Quiet and well maintained. Lots of places to hike, bike and camp. The 2 Nature centers are very educational and they will show you baby gators if they have some around, otherwise you WILL see them around the various waterways..just stay ON the trails. Don't forget to check out the George Observatory on Saturday nights.
  • A beautiful place and very well maintained. You can see the alligators in their natural habitat. They are amazing creatures. Must see if you are traveling around Houston.
  • I'm so sad to give this park only 3 stars. If you are coming for a day trip this place is fantastic. Camping is an entirely different story. Apparently there is someone who owns a house not too far from the campsites who enjoys blaring loud music until 2:30-3:00 in the morning. The first night we were camping I was told this person only does it occasionally. 1-2 times a year. Well I guess I got lucky because both nights we camped in a tent I got to enjoy music until very early in the morning. I asked about it at the front desk and according to the police this person is not breaking any laws and they cannot do ANYTHING to stop it. And I'm seriously doubting that this is a 1-2 times a year deal, considering it happened both nights we camped.
